Second Place:  Sunnyside School   $ 395 

Third Place:  Jefferson School  $ 292

Congratulations to these schools and our District 87 Lion members Tracey Clinton, Kevin Grochowski, and Keith Wood

The Bellwood Lions Club sponsored local schools in submitting individual student entries in the annual International Lions Club Peace Poster Contest.  We saw a terrific response and sent our club winner to the international level for competition.  We didn't win, but the experience was rewarding for participants and our club.  Better luck next year!

The club Donated and served refreshments at Berkeley's free Wednesday evening outdoor concert at  "Music In The Park ."
